We’ve been collecting the anniversary dates of our FB fans the past couple of days, and last count we were at 156. We have nearly 3k fans, so we’re hoping to get a lot more of our readers to respond. If you haven’t added your anniversary yet follow this link to our FB page and do so. We’d appreciate it very much.
All this talk of anniversaries got me thinking about the many things I’ve done for Tom over the years. I love to look at the number we’re celebrating and use it in some way to inspire what I plan. I realize not everyone thinks the way I do, so I thought it might be helpful to make a list of several different numbers and add some creative things you might plan when celebrating that year.
Of course, you can always go with the traditional or modern anniversary gift lists to get ideas, but I like to think more “out of the box.” I can hear Tom adding his hearty AMEN, to that one! 😉
First – celebrate all your firsts: date, kiss, movie, memory, etc.
Fifth – five senses, five vowels, 5K run/walk
Tenth -Make a Top Ten List, Go bowling (10 pins) or play pool
Twelve – Buy a dozen of anything your spouse loves
Thirteen – Make this a lucky celebration–go horseback riding, go to a horse race, eat Irish food, Visit a nice fountain and throw a coin in while making a wish
Fourteen – 14K gold jewelry is a great place to start.
Eighteen – play a round of golf or play miniature golf.
Twenty-One – Your marriage has come of age. Go out together for a night on the town. Plan to meet at a local hotel’s restaurant at a certain time. Act like you don’t know each other and this is your first date. Wear something they haven’t seen before to make it even more special. You could even surprise your date by getting a room. 😉
Twenty-Five – Traditionally called your silver wedding anniversary, make a list of your favorite twenty-five romantic memories you have made together.
Thirty – Often called the big 3 – 0, give your spouse 3 0’s they’ll never forget. Choose from this list: Olive Garden, Outback Steakhouse, Oysters on the half shell, Orgasm, Othello (game or play), Oklahoma (the musical), Orchestra, Opera, Opal jewelry, Opus One (wine), etc. This one works for any year ending in a zero.
Thirty-One – Baskin and Robbins boasts 31 flavors. Enjoy a night out for ice cream together.
